Ryan Anderson to Hornets
Updating a previous report, the Magic and Hornets have agreed to a sign-and-trade sending Ryan Anderson to New Orleans and Gustavo Ayon to Orlando.

It seems the Magic felt they couldn't match an impending offer sheet, so by working a sign-and-trade they'll at least get Ayon, who proved more than serviceable last year and comes with an unguaranteed $1.5 million salary next season, a $1.5 million team option in 2013-14, and a $1.9 million qualifying offer in 2014-15. The Hornets may renounce their rights to Chris Kaman and Carl Landry to make this work financially, but they're still expected to match the Suns' max offer sheet for Eric Gordon. Anderson's contract is reportedly worth about $36 million over four years.

Nice pickup for the Hornets. Anderson isn't much help defensively, but he can score when called upon.

Poor man's Kevin Love with room to improve. I expect his rebounding and block numbers to rise not playing next to Dwight Howard anymore.

This was a great pick up for the Hornets and makes me very sad as a Magic fan.

The Hornets seem to have gotten their act together.

They are making all the right moves to begin a serious rebuild. Ryan is perfect for that as he is still young, can play, and comes at a low cost.
